Children earn house points as a reward for good work and behaviour. House points contribute to a team award of the house cup as well as individual awards at 25, 50, 75, 100 and 150 points. The children compete in house teams at events like sports day. The weekly and termly totals are tracked and celebrated by the children across the whole school.
How do House points work?
Children are put into houses when they join the school. They earn house points through good behaviour, hard work and generally through making a positive impact on the school. Children mark their house points off of their own individual record as well as then posting them to count towards the overall score for their house.
What do children earn with their house points?
The house points are counted up weekly and termly and the winning house is awarded a cup. As well as contributing to the houses scores, the children also earn awards for their own achievements. The house points (also called ASPIRE points) build up and children earn rewards, for example pens, pencils and rulers. They are awarded prizes when they get 25, 50, 75, 100 and 150 points. 100 points earns them a Sutton-at-Hone pin badge.
